Follow Friday #16

Follow Friday! Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends!

This weeks featured blogs are Hands and Home and Me, My Shelf and I

Q: Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).
Cleopatra VII: Daughter of the Nile, Egypt, 57 B.C. (The Royal Diaries)
A: The book that most influenced my life would have to be The Royal Diaries Series. I loved reading about these amazing girls in different historical time periods. I would imagine myself in their world and these books were one of the first things that made me interested in cultures that lead to my career. During High School and College, I only read textbooks or non-fiction books. Then in my last years of college I stumbled upon the Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I could not put that book down. I devoured the series and was left wanting more. I thank Stephanie Meyer and those that recommended the book because it rekindled my love of reading fiction and that introduced me to the wonderful world of book blogging. :) 

What was the most influential book in your life?

    OMG I can't believe I forgot about the Royal Diaries series! I really loved those books, but instead of Cleopatra, it was the Anastasia book that affected me. It got me totally hooked into the mystery of Anastasia and the Romanovs. The Cleopatra one is fabulous too, definitely my 2nd favourite in the series.

  9. I loved the Royal Diaries! And I also loved those historical books that were in the form of a diary. I can't remember the name of the series! I still have some of those, I think.

    Twilight is also a good choice!

  11. Hopping through. I wish the Royal Diaries series was around when I was young. I was a bit too old for it when it came out. I would have loved it.
